The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee is accepting funding requests for programming in honor of the 2021 MLK Celebration. This year’s theme is “Closing the Divide: Building Communities of Support, Belonging, and Togetherness.”

Co-sponsorships of events can range from $100 to $2,000. Past co-sponsorships have helped support speakers, films, displays, workshops, webinars and virtual media costs. The deadline to submit funding requests is Monday, Jan. 4, at 5 p.m. Proposals must be submitted online through CampusGroups.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic social distancing guidelines, funding cannot be provided for food for in-person events.Any questions about the funding requests process can be directed to John Killings at
